Marlowe appears in Berkoff's Women and No Fear!, running in repertory under her own direction. Opening is June 13 (No Fear! at 3 PM, Berkoff's Women at 7 PM). Each show runs 75 minutes. The rotating schedule allows you to see both shows on Saturday and Sunday and on consecutive weekdays. "From her unique association with Steven Berkoff, Linda Marlowe presents Berkoff's Women, a theatrical exploration of sensuality, revenge, pathos, heart-breaking loneliness and riotous humor," according to the announcement. "Having worked with Berkoff for over 20 years, this is a compilation of some of the most rewarding and exciting moments of Berkoff's female roles, featuring excerpts from his plays, Decadence, Greek, East, Agamemnon, Sturm Und Drang, plus a newly dramatized story, From My Point of View.

Actor-playwright-director Berkoff has also directed Marlowe in the West End productions of Metamorphosis, Decadence, The Trial, Hamlet, Greek and Coriolanus.

No Fear! was devised by Linda Marlowe and Gavin Marshall.  According to production notes, "On the eve of her 100th birthday, the world’s oldest wire walker looks back at her many careers as daring divorcee, raunchy rock-chick, undercover operator, Amazonian adventurer, manic mother and professional free spirit."

The work is billed as being based entirely on events in Marlowe's real life. This solo piece is "presented through music, mime and monologue in her unique physical style."

59E59 Theaters is at 59 East 59th Street (between Madison & Park). The performance schedule is Tuesday Friday at 8 PM, Saturday at 2 PM & 8 PM and Sunday at 3 PM & 7 PM.
